BHGS Tournament Rules - De Bellis Multitudinis
Last updated: 20/04/2012
Competition will use the full rules and the current BHGS Clarifications for V3.2. Time of day will only be played if both players agree, weather rules will apply unless both players agree not to use them.
All lists submitted must not exceed the number of points specified in the tournament parameters. Army lists must specify the Date and any specific sub-list or named commander.
Once an army list has been submitted it may not be changed or altered other than to correct any errors. Players may only correct their errors by making reasonable changes to their list. It is not allowed to completely re-write the list, and the list checkers decision on this is final. Army lists must be submitted for checking in advance and must be received by the list checker by the deadline listed in the tournament parameters
Please note that only incoming calls to the list checker are possible, and that the list checker can only respond to queries in connection with army lists. All other queries must be addressed to the organisers. Lists should be sent in a sensible format, the list checker may refuse lists that are unreadable or in obscure file formats, please be considerate.
Figures must be representative and painted and based to an acceptable standard. Players must fully define their troops as they are placed on table. Figures must provide a reasonably accurate representation of the troops they are trying to represent they must not look deliberately misleading.
Table size is as defined in the tournament parameters.
Players must supply their own terrain pieces. These must be to an acceptable standard, and umpires will have the discretion to remove unsightly items.
Players must be present and ready to start the match at the appointed time. Where a player has a reasonable excuse for arriving late the match start will be delayed by up to 30 minutes. After which time the affected player will be awarded a bye. No player will be awarded more than one bye for any reason.
If a player resigns from a game at any stage after the first set up dice have been rolled their opponents will be awarded maximum points, and they will be awarded 0 points.
When time is called, play will continue until the end of the defender's bound.
